The 19-yr-old Australian model with Down syndrome did a wedding shoot which was nothing short of amazing.

Stuart had teamed up with professional photographer Sarah Houston at bed-and-breakfast Rixey Manor, Virginia - a popular destination for weddings , where she modeled three different made by designer Ava Laurenne.

The photo shoot was organized for the teenage model by the owner of Rixey Manor, Isadora Martin-Dye, and her husband.

"A lot of newly engaged women cannot see themselves as a bride because all the images magazines use are of these tall, thin models,"

"I think that being a bride is a life experience that every women should be able to see herself doing — and definitely not stressing about the fact that they won't look 'perfect' on their wedding day, " Martin-Dye told TODAY.com in a statement.

Stuart is the world’s first professional model with Down syndrome. She shares some of her professional photos with her 120,000 followers along with inspirational messages.

Her fans cheered her on for the wedding shoot which has gone viral, sending encouraging messages her way.

"Madeline when I grow up I want to be just like you! Don't listen to what anyone says: you are beautiful in every single way!!!” wrote an Instagram user.

"You are 1 beautiful lady & you deserve the accolades that are finally coming your way; not for being Down syndrome (as that is a part of you, BUT it doesn't define you) but for being a naturally beautiful (sic) & photogenic lady,” another commented on Stuart’s viral wedding photos.
